INX Announces Deluxe Digital Studios Initial Win for New Internal Computing Cloud Project

Deluxe Digital Studios Inc., a subsidiary of Deluxe Entertainment Services Group Inc., provides 2D and 3D home entertainment services to the motion picture studios. As the demand increases for high definition content, Deluxe Digital Studios needed to find enhanced solutions for internal transfers and security on their Local Area Network. The result is a collaborative effort between Deluxe and INX that began with a proof of concept and has evolved into an efficiency gaining effort leveraging virtualization technology.

The project will build an Internal computing cloud and virtualize the server and desktop environment to take advantage of the resulting reduction in power, cooling, and space needed inside the data center. To accomplish the job, INX and Deluxe designed a solution comprised of Cisco Systems, VMware and EMC technology. The architecture leverages Cisco Nexus, ASA firewalls, and Unified Computing System platforms to provide the foundation for a virtualized server, network and storage environment.

INX was chosen to design and deploy this business critical solution because of their unique Strategic Delivery Framework (SDF) used to align technology needs and business challenges, solving both in a formalized process to maximize positive business outcomes. This initial win came in early 2010 after the proof of concept was completed. INX is currently ramping up for the implementation phase of the job.

Mark Hilz, INX President stated, “Addressing our client’s business needs using a thorough and detailed process is core to INX’s engagement methodology. We are pleased to have been selected for this project. It’s exciting to partner with an industry leader.”

Nizar Thabet, Director of Worldwide IT Infrastructure at Deluxe Digital Studios said, “We originally brought INX in to consult with them, but after working through their process we have expanded the scope of this project to take advantage of their expertise and build a more comprehensive, long lasting solution.”
